Mt. Batulao: Traverse Day Hike

 

Mt. Batulao

Mt. Batulao is located at Nasugbu, Batangas and is 811 meters above sea level. The accessibility, the 360 degrees breathtaking view of Batangas and the amazing landscape of the mountain makes it one of the perfect getaway from city. It is also one of the top mountains for beginners.

Mt. Batulao have two trails, the Old and New trail, which gives you an option on which trail to take first. Our group took New to Old trail which I think is easier than the other way around because if you took Old trail first, you have to climb through boulders.

We may have encountered challenges such as muddy trails, leg cramps, steep slopes and long walks under the scorching heat of the sun but overall, everything went good because the trail is so easy that you won’t get lost. I suggest to buy a bamboo stick for Php 10 as your trekking pole if the trail is muddy, it will make your trekking easier!

We immediately ordered Halo-Halo upon reaching the summit. Yes! they sell Halo-Halo at the top of the mountain! Something to enjoy while resting after a long walk. 🙂

So here’s the part where we have to rappel down via Old trail. Some locals just ran on it like a ninja while we struggle our way down! Unbelievable!

After rappelling down, we had another long walk going back to registration area. That’s all for Mt. Batulao! Personally, this is my easiest day hike and I like it there because they sell Halo-Halo. Haha!
